Post what you just had to eat.

Restaurant, something you knocked up, crap paramo in a bun at the boro ground....whatever. 

 

Went to the Buck Inn in Sadberge last night. Mrs got sucked in by their instagram photos. Tried a mozzarella stick parmo as I was going o get them as a starter and decided to kill two birds with one stone. came looking like something a student had made. I know places will take good photos for instagram but plate and presentation of the entire meal was 100% different it was laughable! 

Wish I took a photo of it now, as I looked it up on Instagram as we left and the presentation was 100% different. Attached the insta photo, and then one that's been posted to their FB page and I'd say even that was generous. Anaemic chips, bland parmo (I know they're hardly a delicacy), and to cap it all off a wasp was harassing us so I had to trap the sod int he ketchup bowl, so he was raging at me throughout the meal. Service was slow AF. 

I should have read the warning signs when we pulled up and it said on the menu "Check out the George pub & grill in Stockton" and they share a website so probably not the best start given it had a 1* rating for ages and pretty much try and get in the news/unilad/ladbible all the time with shock tactics (punch your ex for a parmo, 3000cal meals etc). Checked Scores on the Doors and this place at least had a 5*. In terms of quality overall I would say 2/5, and thats feeling generous.

Lmao I know restaurants and fast food places have their dishes photographed and edited professionally but that's close to false advertising, like they cooked it like that once and then served the crap you got ever since.

Don't get me started on The George Pub & Grill, the place shouldn't be allowed to sell food. I've also read recently he's removed all diet drinks from draught? Way to alienate your customers with diabetes.

I've just had a Beef & Tomato Pot Noodle and a Pepperoni Dairylea Lunchables because i'm at work and also a big manchild, but last night I had a banging Chinese takeaway.

That parmo looks garbage too, where's the rest of it?

Compare that to this one from Norton...

    • Boro flashback this day 22nd November 1986                       Newport County 0 Boro 1 The face of advercity bandwagon is rolling on brilliantly & gathering pace, up to the Newport game we had played 16 league games & suffered 2 defeats, along with 4 league cup matches & one defeat against a team in a higher league & in to extra time, this from the same 12 players who had no summer practise matches, no friendlies, just training in local parks with jumpers as goal posts, the season was far better than the most optimistic of us Boro supporter could dream of  Bruce couldnt ask for any more from his players With the clock ticking down to the 90 minutes mark & the game finishing goaless at Somerton Park, it was looking like our 1st ever fixture on this ground was to be points shared, but, the mighty Boro & Boro legend Mogga had other ideas, we have a corner & with time almost over 'Tony Mowbray' nods home to score the vital winner & the ref blows the whistle, its full time, we take all three points back & the Boro fans, with the 5 hour journey, 300 miles back to Teesside to look forward to are ecstatic  Brucy Riochs red & white army team is Stephen Paers Brian Laws Colin Cooper Tony Mowbray Gary Parkinson Gary Pallister Bernie Slaven Archie Stephens Alan Kernaghan Gary Gill Stuart Ripley SUB Gary Hamilton on for Alan Kernaghan
    • Spurs might finally win something though, so maybe it's a tradeoff they are willing to make.
